FL Studio Editions & Features

It's our philosophy is that you should only pay for the features you use. We provide FL Studio in four editions, each with more features than the next. The product hierarchy below notes some key features:

  • FL Studio Fruity Edition - Is aimed at those people who need Piano roll and Pattern Clips in the Playlist for sequencing, but don't need Audio Clips, Audio Recording, Slicex or Edison.
  • FL Studio Producer Edition - Provides the highest level of functions in FL Studio. It gives you access to ALL Clip types in the Playlist, Audio Recording, Automation Clips, Slicex, Edison and more!
  • FL Studio Signature Bundle - Signature Bundle is a 'bundle' including Producer Edition + a collection of our 'signature' (most advanced) plugins. It's the cost effective way to get your hands on our best gear. If you already own some of the plugins in the Signature Bundle, the Image-Line store will automatically deduct these from the upgrade price.
  • FL Studio All Plugins Bundle - All Plugins Bundle is a 'bundle' including Producer Edition + all plugins we currently sell. It's the cost effective way to get your hands on everything. If you already own some of the plugins in the Bundle, the Image-Line store will automatically deduct these from the upgrade price. The average discount is around 60% on the separate purchase pricing. This does not include all future plugins we release however. You will be able to update your bundle at a reduced cost.

NOTES: 1. When a plugin is 'included' with Fruity, Producer Edition or Signature Bundle, this refers to the native version of the plugin. All Plugins Bundle includes the native plugin and any VST or AU versions (should they exist for that plugin). 2. Please see the feature comparison list on the FL Studio website for a detailed comparison of each Edition and Bundle. 3. You may upgrade from one edition to the next at any time (check the shop for upgrade pricing).

What's FL Studio TRIAL mode?

FL Studio TRIAL is functionally equivalent to the FL Studio All Plugins Bundle. If you are using trial mode there is only one limitation - Projects can be saved but can't be opened again until FL Studio is purchased and unlocked. If you have used instruments or effects in the project not included in the edition purchased (above), then you will need to buy those plugin/s too. Projects in this state will open but the plugin/s will be replaced with place holders.

You can tell if a plugin is a trial when the Wrapper window title bar shows "(trial)" after the plugins name. All other functions in the FL Studio trial are fully unlocked. It is the equivalent of Signature Bundle plus all plugins. Remember, you can render to .wav, .mp3 .ogg or .mid files prior to saving a trial project.

Edition Icons

When one of the following icons appears next to the page title it means the feature or plugin is exclusive to a certain FL Studio edition or must be purchased separately. You can learn more about the editions here in the manual, or for a complete comparison of the FL Studio Editions Compared visit the Feature Comparison page. When a plugin is 'included' with Fruity, Producer Edition or Signature Bundle, this refers to the native version of the plugin. All Plugins Bundle includes the native plugin and any VST or AU versions (should they exist for that plugin).

- The feature or plugin is included with FL Studio (Fruity Edition, Producer Edition & Signature Bundle).
- The feature or plugin is included with FL Studio (Producer Edition & Signature Bundle).
- The plugin may be a trial, depending on your FL Studio version. If a project is saved, and it contains plugins that are in trial mode, the trial plugins will be replaced by empty channels/slots next time the project is opened. Each trial plugin that is subsequently purchased and registered will load as it was originally saved next time the project is opened.

WARNING: If you open and then re-save a project that contains trial plugins, the settings for these plugins will be lost. To unlock the trial plugins visit the Image-Line store and buy them. After purchase you can continue working on these projects with the plugin settings as originally saved.
